10 best moments from the 2019 NCAA Tournament — March Madness

Texas Tech and Virginia meet in the national championship game on Monday

The NCAA Tournament will have its first first-time champion since coach Billy Donovan won it all with Florida in 2006. A year after a humiliating tournament exit against 16-seed UMBC - followed by death threats and his open discussion of battles with anxiety - Guy was the Final Four's most outstanding player for a Virginia team that finally had the title many said it couldn't win with its conservative offense and pace of play.

And now, there are no more questions.

Since a college basketball powerhouse isn't playing in the final game, prices on the secondary market are lower than in years past. "We'll bounce back. I'm just so proud of those guys". Culver's close-out out wasn't quick enough to prevent Hunter from setting his feet, squaring his shoulder and dropping in the biggest shot of his career.

Hunter saved his best for last as he posted a career-high 27 points, taking over the game like the National Basketball Association lottery pick that he's projected to be.

Guy scored 24 points in Monday night's 85-77 overtime win against Texas Tech, a match of defensive-minded teams that instead spent much of the game trading big shot after big shot. It further cemented the Red Raiders' inability to come back when, 25 seconds later, Matt Mooney fouled Ty Jerome, who made both free throws to extend UVA's lead to four. The nation's best defense hardly ever leaves someone that wide-open.

"In that situation, with less than a shot clock (30 seconds) left, we're trying to play really sound defense with objectives", Beard said. In addition to Hunter's first-half struggles, Culver missed all six of his shots in a half that saw them spend a lot of possessions guarding each other.

The poise showed up earlier in the tournament, too.

A year ago, the Cavaliers became the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 when they were knocked off by Baltimore-Maryland County in the first round. They've won a pair of regular-season ACC championships over the same span.

Behind a controversial foul call and some critical free throws, Kyle Guy and the Cavaliers survived for a 63-62 win over No. 5 Auburn on Saturday. No, I wish it wouldn't have happened in some ways.

According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Cavaliers are a 1.5-point favorite on the spread line. "But being down 14 against Gardner-Webb, and you did not panic in that moment, and you fought, and you found a way out, '" Bennett said. Because obviously he didn't get one. The catharsis of the final moment, when the buzzer-beater goes in or the defender cradles the rebounded ball in his arms as the last seconds tick away, is its own reward.

Last year, the Wolverines were such a fun group to watch.
